Alamo Car Rentals in Solana Beach: What you need to know

Solana Beach is just one of many neighborhoods in San Diego that are worth exploring, and, you will wish for a car to check out everything there is to do here. Public transportation, while cheap, drop you off far from where you wanted to go. Ridesharing can be convenient, but you'd be surprised by which cities don't have service. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Solana Beach and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town for a good price, then you're in the right place. CarRentals.com works with several of the best companies. Opening its doors in 1974, Alamo pioneered the concept of Unlimited Free Mileage. Alamo strives to provide low-cost, high-value rentals to both business and family travelers.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I find the best deals on a Solana Beach Alamo rental car?

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best deal. Nonetheless, you can remember a couple things to keep your upcoming booking affordable:

  • Compare all the deals available
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Make sure you know any cost for an added driver, fuel policy, and mileage limits. That way you will know the actual cost before you rent your car
  • Decide the car you'll need for your drive. Don't rent more car than you need

A bit of knowledge goes a long way to increase your savings.

Which forms of identification do I need when I pick up my rental car in Solana Beach?

Make sure to bring your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's 's minimum age to rent a car Solana Beach?

Alamo's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Alamo's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Solana Beach?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Solana Beach. If you are having a little trouble deciding, make sure to go over our chart below. We have compared the most popular categories for you:

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

When cruising through Solana Beach or the rest of the United States, you will need insurance. Alamo requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage through Alamo. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

The major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) will usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to San Diego.

Do I need to put down a deposit on my Alamo car rental?

Alamo, like many other rental car companies, requires a deposit when you make your reservation. The amount can vary greatly based on which vehicle you reserve. Additionally, be sure there is enough on your credit card to cover a deposit.

What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?

Alamo and most other rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing it back filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Alamo.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Solana Beach?

The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you want to make sure it's part of your package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may need to get unlimited miles if you are planning to explore all that is in San Diego.
